On 10th July 2023 pupils at St Egwin's had a whole day Careers Fair. All pupils were given the opportunity to work in small groups with one of 40 volunteers from 14 different industry sectors, including many local and national business representatives. The pupils enjoyed a hands-on experience of different careers ranging from, Agriculture, Finance, Insurance, Construction, Engineering through to Public Services and Hospitality. They were also introduced to post-16 options such as colleges and apprenticeships.
The presenters who gave up their time were hugely complementary about the enthusiasm of the pupils and the endeavour of the school in organising the event.
Careers Enterprise Advisor, Helen Airdrie presented at the event "Just to reiterate my congratulations on such a fantastic day yesterday. The organisation was superb and a credit to your meticulous planning and attention to detail."
This was only part of St Egwin's Careers offer, which includes skills development, experiences, CV writing and preparation for interview, with the aim of equipping children from Evesham with the knowledge and skills both that they need, and that the community values.
